In 2019, We’re Loud Fest went from Puerto Rico… to Reno… to Vietnam! After having put on three festivals in three different countries, the break forced upon us by a terrible 2020 was welcome in a weird way. But now it’s 2021, everyone in their right mind* has been vaccinated, and we’re ready for action.
We’ve been tentatively planning We’re Loud Oaxaca since the beginning of the year. It’s been an emotional rollercoaster… er, better yet, a bumper car crash of yes/no/maybe indecisiveness, followed by an optimistic & hopeful decision. And here we are, approximately one month before the show: Oaxaca is cruising COVID with a “green light”, and we’re happy to say to you all: IT’S ON!
We’ve got a great lineup for you, with DUG DUG’s, Mexico’s unsung and underappreciated heroes of 60s rock’n’roll and 70s psychedelia; the KiDS, who’ve been playing raw rock’n’roll since 1976, before punk was really a thing (and who are now considered godfathers of Belgian punk); and the RIP OFFs, 90s SF budget rock legends who, like the MUMMiES, finally said yes to us after a decade of trying to get them to play We’re Loud Fest.
That’s just the beginning: a slew of killer international bands and DJs have been announced, some surprises will remain unannounced, and our location this year is particularly special – because we live here now! When the pandemic began, we came to hide out & quarantine in Puerto Escondido, and we liked it so much that we decided to make a home here. So this year’s edition of We’re Loud Fest is also somewhat of a town-warming party for us.
This place is insanely beautiful. The weather is always perfect, the people are warm & welcoming, everything costs half (or less!) what it does in Europe or the USA, the waves are great for all levels of surfing at various beaches, Oaxacan cuisine & mezcal are exceptional, and sunsets are jaw-dropping in Mexico’s most biodiverse state. This is a place to spend weeks or months in, not days. Our wanderlust is nothing like it used to be — everything we look for when we’re traveling is already here — except for rock’n’roll — so we’re bringing it! and are very much looking forward to seeing you all here.
TICKETS are 850 MXN / $45 USD and are ON SALE NOW on our WEBSITE (after you check out all the bands, scroll down and click TICKETS!)
